Description

A photograph of a group of hop pickers at Beltring, Kent, taken by Malindine for the Daily Herald newspaper. Each year, thousands of men, women and children migrated from London to Kent to help with the hop harvest. Hop picking lasted for about four weeks from the end of August. By the 1960s, machines had removed the necesity for hand-picking hops. This photograph has been selected from the Daily Herald Archive, a collection of over three million photographs. The archive holds work of international, national and local importance by both staff and agency photographers.
